WELCOME TO YOUR MARKET!
The North Star Food Hub is a distributor and marketplace of food grown and produced in New York State, focusing primarily on products from Jefferson, St. Lawrence, Oswego, and Lewis Counties. We make it possible for North Country farmers to work together to meet the growing demand for local, sustainable food. Farmers benefit from the marketing, selling, and delivering of fresh farm products to local and regional buyers. Our marketplace brings fresh, healthy, locally grown and produced food to you, the buyer, in a cost-effective manner on a weekly basis.
Ordering from the North Star Food Hub helps to strengthen North Country businesses and farms -- and the communities who depend upon them. Buying locally grown and produced food has never been easier!

Are you a wholesale customer? Be sure to choose wholesale when you register for an expanded list of products, sizes, and delivery routes. As always, wholesale orders will be delivered directly to your location. Upon registration, simply select the delivery day for the location in which your business resides. The ordering window begins on Wednesdays at 7:00 a.m. and ends on Sunday evenings at the stroke of midnight. Wholesale orders will be delivered to Watertown through Alexandria Bay to the Canton/Potsdam area on Tuesdays. Orders within Lewis County, Syracuse, Utica, Rome and Old Forge will be delivered on Wednesdays. Massena, Madrid, Malone, and Wanakena orders will be delivered on Wednesday. Thursday & Friday will be wholesale/retail local deliveries only.
Are you a retail customer? Our new retail option makes many of our great products directly available to local consumers. Simply register as a retail customer and begin filling your online cart. For your convenience, we've pre-packed reusable bags with the best of local North Country seasonal products. Choices include our delicious Breakfast Bag, seasonal Fruit and Vegetable Bag, and a Snack Bag. You can also add a la carte items to your order, ranging from grass-fed steaks to shiitake mushrooms to fresh bread.
Orders may be placed only during a limited window each week. This allows our farmers and producers time to list new products and harvest their fields. Ordering begins Wednesday morning at 7:00 am and concludes Sunday evenings at the stroke of midnight. We then pack your order and deliver it to your chosen pickup location on the following Thursday, Friday or Saturday. To save on costs, we ask that you return your bag each week so that it can be reused. The minimum order is $23.
At registration, specify which pickup location you will use. Pay online with your credit card. You can then pick your order up at one of our distribution locations in Lewis, Jefferson and Oneida Counties. Pickup locations and times include:
